“They're Made of Meat.”

Remember that classic sci-fi story about the aliens who are wondering how creatures made of meat could be sending out radio waves?

No?

Darn, should have called this one “TO SERVE MAN.”

BTW That story won a Nebula I think, you should check it out.

I don't know, I think more people would get the Bisson reference than would get the Twilight Zone reference. It's a pretty well-known story.

Whenever I mention Terry Bisson to anyone, it's like:
"Who?"
"The 'They're Made of Meat' guy."
"Oooooh, yeah."

I read the story in grammar school and it always stuck with me.

"Meat?"
